Spanish nobles slain
after terrorist threat

MADRID, Spain (AP) - The
Marquess of Urquijo and his wife,
members of one of Spain's richest
families, were found shot to death in
their beds yesterday and a business
associate reported the couple had
received a death threat from Basque
Speculation of a politically inspired'
assassination increased as police
discarded robbery as a motive.
THEY SAID nothing of value ap-
peared to be missing from the elegant
suburban villa where the 54-year-old
marquess, Manuel de la Sierra Torres,
and his wife were found dead in
separate bedrooms. A maid discovered
the bodies when the couple failed to
respond to a breakfast call.
The marquess was killed with a
single bullet in the neck while his wife,
Maria Lourdes Urquijo, 45, heir to the
title, was shot in the neck and mouth,
according to police.
All three shots were said to have been
fired from six to eight inches away
while the victims slept.
DESCRIBING THE killings as a
professional job, investigators
suggested a silencer may have been
used. The casings of .22-caliber bullets
were found in the two bedrooms.
Police declined to discuss a report



from the Bank of Urquijo that the
couple previously had been threatened
by ETA, the Basque separatist
However, a bank official confirmed
that the marquess and marchioness
had received a death threat from ETA.
The organization is held responsible for
more than 50 political killings in Spain
this year.
ETA repeatedly has warned it would
kill executives of firms who do not paya
"revolutionary tax" to the separatists.

Libya trip
Cotnued from Page1)
On Capitol Hill, the Senate yesterday
authorized investigators looking into
Billy Carter's ties with Libya to obtain
his tax and business records for the
past five years.
A resolution adopted by the Senate
said a special Judiciary subcommittee
needs the tax data in order to in-
vestigate allegations that Billy Carter
received financial aid from "Libyan
"educational" herings next week in its
investigation in an effort to lay out the
background for more substantive
testimony later. One hearing will focus
on the history and goals of Libya;
another on the Justice Department's
enforcement of the law under which
Billy Carter belatedly registered as a
foreign agent.
Billy Carter filed papers with the
Justice Department last month
acknowledging he had received $220,000
from the Libyan government and acted
as a foreign agent for Moammar
Khadafy's regime.
The Justice Department had been in-
vestigating his Libyan activities for
months before that. Attorney General
Benjamin Civiletti told the president
privately in June that his brother
probably would not be prosecuted if he
registered as an agent.
That move, and other questions
raised about the president and his
brother, sparked investigations in both
the House and Senate. Bayh said the
goal of his panel is to find whether Billy
Carter, a registered foreign agent, in-
fluenced U.S. policy.
The president said this week his
brother had no influence on either him
or U.S. policies.
